As a natural living company that are dedicated to doing our bit for the environment, here at LiveMoor we strive to use as little plastic packaging as possible.
We are moving towards a world where none of our packaging contains plastic or non-biodegradable materials.
All of our orders are treated with the upmost care and we are now starting to replace our traditional plastic lined bags with ones that are 100% biodegradable.
The Oxo-biodegradable mailing bags are manufactured in 3 layer co-extruded film.
The polythene film is manufactured from at least 25% post consumer waste and are also 100% Oxo-biodegradable*
*The term ‘Oxo-biodegradable’ is a hybridisation of two words, oxidation and biodegradable. It clearly defines a two step process initiated by an additive called 'Reverte' to degrade the polythene film and make it available for biodegradability within the environment when a bag has finished its useful life, usually within a set time period depending on the % added. 1% would trigger in around 6-8 months.
Naturally, some plastic packaging is currently inevetable as we need to ensure safe transport of goods to our customers. Examples of this would include such items as Terracotta Pots and items containing glass etc - rest assured however that we are of course still searching for biodegradable materials to replace these.
If you have any special instructions to accompany your order then please do not hesitate to contact us. We are always here to help wherever possible.
